I am a post-doctoral researcher at the Queen Mary University of London, working with Professor Massimo Poesio on his five-year DALI project (Disagreements and Language Interpretation, ERC-2015-AdG). Before that, I was a PhD student at the University of Birmingham, working on out-of-domain dependency parsing. I am supervised by Dr Bernd Bohnet, Professor John Barnden and Dr Mark Lee. I received my Master degree from the University of Glasgow in 2013. Before that, I worked at Digital China (Shanghai) Ltd. as a software engineer after I received my undergraduate degree in 2009 from Donghua University (Shanghai, China).

My research interests include anaphora resolution, dependency parsing, deep learning, domain adaptation, semi-supervised methods, unsupervised methods and language model.

My wife recently opened an Etsy shop , selling handmade items
